Details: Go-Ahead London's Plough Lane garage is typical of many 'modern' bus operating bases in that it is somewhat off the beaten track. Located at the end of Waterside Way (this being the name that Go-Ahead use for the base), it is in an industrial area squeezed between a cemetery and a railway line. It is also quite small, with an allocation of about 40 buses (all single-deck) and a couple of crew ferry vehicles. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is not visited very often by LTSV contributors! Ray called in on 22nd August 2020 and found three SVs present. Ford Transit Connect crew van EU16KXR has been here for a few years, but had never been photographed before. The white Mercedes Vito minibus beyond is RJ62ZHB, but we are not sure if this vehicle is still current. Last reported working from Orpington in August 2019, it received a new logbook in February 2020, suggesting that it had been sold. However, I have just noticed that it has since been seen at Go-Ahead's Croydon garage, so perhaps I should un-withdraw it! The third vehicle present was newer Vito minibus RK68GVR in plain red. Latterly at Croydon, it was parked up, out of use and with signs of frontal damage.
